meant? >> after, i think everybody i think michelle obama knocked it out of the park i think for many different reasons. for the crowd, enthusiasm. many people look at her, wow, she could be a national candidate on the scene. for me, watching her, her speaking ability and the ability to generate that has grown dramatically in four years. >> what you heard from the romney campaign, it got much attention today. >> as the president said of mitt romney's speech that kind of tribute to success is to say i didn't watch it. no, this convention has run very smoothly, they've presented in front of america's most gorgeous families in all its rounds appearance, at home, in the white house and out around the country. that's what they set out to do. they did it with all the skill of hollywood. and that's not a criticism. they're supposed to do it that way. >> well, look, there's no question, she got the delegates on their feet. today, i saw more buttons with michelle obama's face than i thought the president's. is she real inspired people. i had people texting and tweeting all around the country,
a picture of the president's wife, the first lady, michelle obama taking in the speeches here, she brought the house down with her own speech last night. once again tonight, bob schieffer is with me here in the anchor booth and our campaign 2012 team is down on the floor. bob, getting president clinton here to make this nomination speech tonight wasn't just a matter of asking him. what is the back story? >> no, you know, think about it, bill clinton's wife ran against barack obama four years ago and things have been a bit rocky between them since then. but about a year ago, the obama people began to make a concerted effort to get bill clinton on this stage tonight. it actually began with an invitation to play golf, then there were calls back and forth, he was asked his opinion on strategy and so forth, and so on, and now she here. they need him, because they think he can get through and talk to the pea people where they are weakest and that is white working class voters. >> bill clinton has become the rock star and tonight is going to be bill clinton night. >> in recent gallup polls presid
to expectations. >> chenk, if we were going to base the election on twitter then the winner would be michelle obama. the most tweets her minute. she had 28,000 tweets per minute during we are speech, mitt romney in comparison was 14,000 tweets per minute. bill clinton did go up against football. we have to take that into consideration. we haven't even heard joe biden or president obama speak so far and already we're at 6.3 million tweets, far surpassing where the republican national convention was. what do we expect from obama tonight. >> i think it's going to be bigger than all of this, although they are going up against the music video awards on mtv. i wouldn't want to stack him against justin bieber. we saw obama for america had their first hash tag today strangely not highjacked. >> they've been highjacked by progressives. the obama campaign bought their first hash tag not highjacked. >> we saw that trending today bill clinton talking about that. i think what's been really interesting is new numbers from a pew study that came out today. how are we going to translate this, 16% have changed
, by cooperation. and by the way, after last night, i want a man who had the good sense to marry michelle obama. [ applause ] >> i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states, and i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. now, folks, in tampa a few days ago, we heard a lot of talk, all about how the president and the democrats don't really believe in free enterprise and individual initiative, how we want everybody to be dependent on the government, how bad we are for the economy. this republican narrative, its alternative universe says that every one of us in this room who amounts to anything, we're all completely self-made. one of the greatest chairmen the democratic party ever had, bob strauss, used to say that every politician wants every voter to believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself. but as strauss then admitted, it ain't so. we democrats, we think the country works better with a strong middle class, with real opportunities for poor folks to work their way into it, where the relentless focus on the future with business and g
michele obama to that list now. >> oh, my gosh. the reaction from that speech has been -- i mean i have heard from people from all walks of life who were completely moved by that speech and brought to tears. i don't even think they expected it to be that good. she was excellent. >> yeah. >> it was her execution that just brought it home. >> her speech was tough. she delivered it well. >> hours before last night's big speeches there was an awkward and unexpected moment on the convention floor, amid criticism from mitt romney, and other top republicans, democrats held a last-minute vote to reinsert the word "god" into the party platform and to declare jerusalem the capital of israel. >> the matter requires a two-thirds vote in the affirmative. all those delegates in favor, say aye. all those delegates opposed say no. >> in the opinion of the -- let me do that again. all of those delegates in favor, say aye. >> aye. >> all those delegates opposed say no. >> no. >> i, um, i guess -- you got to let them do what they're going to do. >> i'll do that one more time. all those delegates in favor,
, though. michelle obama came out the first night and talked about why she and her husband have lived the american dream. we are you. we don't just feel you. we are you. bill clinton talked about why the other side cannot provide the american dream. now i think president obama will come out tonight and explain why he's the better man to get people to that dream. >> luke, i thought it was interesting last night. the number one word i heard, after the word "i," was bill clinton constantly saying "cooperation." it's a powerful argument because he's talking about an america where we all work together. i think if you're financially struggling and scared, what do you want to hear that, you know, we're all going to build it ourselves because we built it ourselves so you can too? or we're going to work together. we're going to be your partner. we're going to work together and cooperate to move america forward. but within the theme of cooperation, of course, is what happens in congress? we know that the obstruction plan started as the inauguration was going on. so if obama's re-elected, do the
to marry michelle obama. are we where we want to be today? no. is the president's -- >> you got to explain it. >> following the bromance can president obama deliver tonight. exactly two months before election day. will the change to the smaller venue be a blessing in disguise and one of the tough challenges that president obama face in the night ahead. >> now the president can talk about the future, having cleared some of that under brush out of the way. we'll hear the president talk about where we need to go and the things we need to do. >> it was on night two we saw a powerhouse of women rolling recasting the choice ahead in this election. >> no governor romney, corporations are not people. people have parts. they have kids. they get jobs. they get sick. they drive. >> so, why are we having to fight in 2012 against politicians who want to end access to birth control? it's like we woke up on a bad episode of "mad men." >> your new president could be a man who stands by when a public figure tries to silence a private citizen with hateful slurs. a man who won't stand up to those slurs or to
is that obviously this is the finale. they feel that michelle obama knocked it out of the park talking about her husband as a husband and in terms of his character. president clinton obviously framed the debate when it comes to the issues they feel like. and he is going to be the one who talks about himself and what he will do if he gets a second chance, a chance at four more years, wolf. >> what about the other speeches tonight, dana? i know the vice president's got a major speech. that will precede the president. but there will be other speeches as well. >> that's right. let's start with the vice president's speech. i just talk today a source familiar with that speech who said it's going to be kind of a series of anecdotes talking about what it has been like to serve at the president's side. and their goal there is to, again, serve as a bit of a character witness, but more specific to president obama's leadership style, how he makes decisions and things like that. i was told that it is a "very generous speech" when it comes to the kind of person president obama is. and of course joe biden is n
night i want a man who had the good sense to marry michelle obama. [ applause ] i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states. and i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. [ cheering and applause ] now folks, in tampa a few days ago we heard a lot of talk about how the president, the democrats don't really believe in free enterprise, how we want everybody to be dependent on the government. how bad we are for the economy, this republican narrative, alternative universe says that everyone of us in this room who amounts to anything we're all completely self centered. one of the greatest chairman the democratic party ever had, bob strauss, used to say that every politician wants every vote tore believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself. but strauss admitted, it ain't so. we democrats, we think the country works better with a strong middle class, with real opportunities for poor folks to work their way in to it with relentless focus on the future with business and government actually working together to promote growth. and br
. it sounds a little bit like michelle obama's speech when she tried to link policy and the person. so this is also a guy joe biden, the vice president who's beenn on some of these decisions, he had a famous phrase which i guess we can't repeat on television to describe when health care passed. what's interesting about this through the prism of joe biden is this is a man who has not ruled out a 2016 run. so a lot will be looked at in this speech. this has been a man who's been quite loyal to president obama, done him a lot of go ahead. he has gone off the reservation as we say a couple of times. but he has done what they've asked of him. and, you know, the question is what happens next? over the next four years. we saw the powerful speech from bill clinton. and of course if you talked to folks out here after bill clinton last night, who do they all want to ask about? hillary clinton. it sets up a really interesting dynamic of a sitting vice president who's been very loyal to this president and of course hillary clinton who said she doesn't want to run. but certainly joe biden has said
was good. michelle obama's speech was good. markell rubio's speech -- marco rubio's speech last week was good. going back and forth, trying to decide which way i will leave. i think it will come down to -- you can have a talking point and you can have these things you're going to do and say you are going to do all you want. it will come down to leadership. the bottom line for me as that barack obama had the control congress his first two years, he got nothing but his own way to do what he wanted to do. i am sorry. he rammed everything three. he did it in a matter of fact way and lost respect of his fellow constituents. the last two years with the republicans are getting a bad rep, beating not want to work with someone like that. >> levy dumping in -- let me jump in on that. let's go back to the floor. >> you probably could get a greater distance -- and that it greater distance between guam of florida. we begin with the mayor of riviera speech, florida. your thoughts? >> with the speech president clinton and left side of michelle, we are going to vote for president obama. how can you
. michele obama. i would agree with that. she is given the best speech. i would definitely agree with that. but there was one dude, the proper -- the prompter went out. i think he gets the sympathy vote, but i digress. we have presented joining us now, democratic representative from the fines to the minnesota. i was talking about how each state, it is a weird thing. i mean that in the highest regard. strong republican, strong democratic areas. jesse ventura. >> absolutely. neil: the bull's eye tight. that is usually not an easy democratic pickup, but the usual democratic pickup. should the president be worried? >> denise to be worry everywhere. as a matter of turnout. you have to get the people out. anybody who goes sicily on minnesota is making a big mistake. neil: i agree with that. the fact that republicans are contemplating some much, is that the expression? they're optimistic. michigan, michigan of all places represented with its ticket to the republican ticket opposing the bailout. competitive. and i'm wondering. wisconsin, ohio, you could be looking at it possibly. >> get togeth
sense to marry michelle obama. [cheers and applause] i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states, and i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. [applause] >> "washington journal" contines. ues. host: a live picture of the time warner cable the arena. our program will begin at 3:00 eastern time from the floor of the convention hall. president obama and vice president biden will accept their parties' nominations tonight. gavel-to-gavel coverage on c- span. meanwhile, we're joined by david wagner, a charlotte anchor, wcnc tv. what do you think about having the convention in your home town? guest: this is great. i think this is something that some never expected. this is the biggest convention that charlotte has ever posted. some people really did not know what to expect. i still think a lot of folks from the charlotte area it may have not had the chance to get down here and experience this. some were a little bit scared away that perhaps traffic would be so bad and businesses would be shut down, and to be honest, after having, fro
. megyn: simon, michelle obama told us that barack obama doesn't think of us as us and them, yet last night elizabeth warren talks about how oil companies are bad, billionaires aren't great, wall street ceos act like we should thank them. isn't that divisive language? all wall street ceos are bad, billionaires are paying lower tax rates than their secretaries and oil companies, i mean, isn't that the kind of division that michelle obama was trying to say the president doesn't do? >> i don't think there's anything that elizabeth warren said last night that was untrue, and i think that part of what the -- it's a little loud in here, i'm doing my best -- [laughter] i love that video, by the way, megyn, that was terrific before we came on. i think what elizabeth warren was trying to say last night, and i think what the democrats are saying this week is we just have a different vision for how the economy should work than the republicans. we believe that we're all in this together, that people should pay their fair share, we believe that the government has to have the needed resources to in
with michelle obama and tonight's speakers have been clearly trying to continue to push romney and tonight particularly with sandra fluke, to push romney to push him to the extremes on cant rasept whereon and social issues that affect women. right now, that's working for obama. you know, people like to take about, well, there is a gap with men, that romney leads on. but i think the obama people figured out, they can keep the gap with women and hispanics and to keep forcing that out. don't let romney close it, which they may have been worried about, with the ann romney speech. i think some of this is a reaction to that. >> you point out, the man we saw on stage, jim sin gel, speaking about business and the way forward. brit, tonight, we have elizabeth warren, the senate candidate in massachusetts and then leading in to president clinton. what do you expect from both speeches? >> well, elizabeth warren's speech has been... put out. i have seen it. i don't think it will surprise anyone. she, like sandra fluke, will be a big hero and a big -- will get a big boost from this audience. it's what
emanuel, mayor julian castro, michelle obama, and most potently, bill clinton. if they send these people home, the obama people are blowing a golden opportunity. if they equip them, commission them, engage with them and send them on the road, they will have a team of confederates that will constitute the greatest partisan cavalry charge in history. joining me right now is eugene robinson of "the washington post," pulitzer price winning columnist, and the indefatiguable steve smith, who stays true to his party surrounded by all kinds of hostile forces. thank you, steve smith. i want to start with gene and then to steve quickly. what has to be different in the president's speech tonight, which we're told is going to be relatively brief, compared to the great speech he gave in 2004 and again in 2004. >> i don't think he can be just poetry. i don't think he can be just hope and change. for obvious reasons. so i think it has to be more specific than that. i do think it has to be forward looking. i don't think a whole lot of this is the mess george bush left us in is going to play right now. i
, michelle obama's speech was a good one. bill clinton will tee it up later this evening. the party is not dead but it is confused. it's hard to see how independent voters are going to be swayed by what's going on in charlotte. that's the memo. now for the top story tonight. dick morris closely following the democratic convention. author of the big best seller "screwed." and he joins us now. so, first of all, that was embarrassing, right? >> yeah. i think he needs a hearing aid. >> bill: he was going to do it no matter what. it was close. >> what should have happened was somebody should have had the chutzpa to demand a "roll call." >> that would take forever. >> i know. i think that the democratic leadership and he is part of that says we have got to get out of this. the word is and some of our reporters have mentioned it to me that barack obama himself said you better get god and jerusalem back into that platted form. >> but there is something very serious by the media covering. this three changes they made to the platform. one is israel. jerusalem, which they put back in then this
speaker in both nights. the star speakers, the keynote two nights ago and michelle obama and last night with bill clinton, the really were strong. i think mitt romney had a good performance, not great, but good. mrs. romney had a good performance, not great, but good p.m. altogether, based on purely show this factor, the democrats so far may be putting out a better show. but at the end of the day, i have to be honest with you. i don't think conventions matter as much as they used to. i think what mitt romney is doing right now, getting ready for the debate, i think that will determine the election, these three debates. >> we have been keeping track of bill clinton's convention appearances. his longest speech was in 1996 was 55 minutes. we will go down to the floor with libby casey. >> kb hurley, who is a delegate for the state of alaska, one of the oldest of delegates, 91 years old, you have been too late conventions. how is this one special? -- you have been to eight conventions. how is this one special? >> it seems more diverse to me. and i see more young people here. >> you serve in
, and i'm sure will, tomorrow, will be saying, man, they have michelle obama, bill clinton, and president obama. i wish we had a murderer's row like that on our side. >> i have to wrap this up. a bit of breaking news we have to pass on to people. thank you, roland and will. as usual. >> you bet. >>> this is cnn breaking newses. >>> ok. now for the breaking news. a u.s. airways flight returns to the airport following a threat. our affiliate wpvi is reporting u.s. airways flight 1267 had already left philadelphia on its way to dallas when a threat was called in involving a passenger carrying an explosive liquid. it happened just after 7:00 eastern this morning. the plane is back on the ground. the plane will now be searched. of course we're going to monitor the situation. if they find anything or even if they don't, of course we'll pass it along to you. but for now, those passengers are pretty much stuck. we'll be right back. >>> 13 minutes past the hour. to money news this morning, one of the keywords used in both political conventions, jobs. this morning, the labor department says 365,000
. and by the way, after last night, i want a man who had the good sense to marry michelle obama. now, i -- i, i want -- i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states. and, i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. now, folks, in tampa a few days ago, we heard a lot of talk. oh, about how the president and the democrats don't really believe in free enterprise and individual initiative. how we want everybody to depend on the government. how bad we are for the economy. this republican narrative, its alternative universe says that every one of us in this room who amounts to anything, we're all completely self-made. one of the greatest chairman that the democratic party ever had, bob strauss, used to say that every politician wants every voter to believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself. but, as strauss then admitted, it ain't so. we democrats, we think the country works better with a strong middle class, with real opportunities for poor folks to work their way into it. with business and government actually working together to promote gr
obama today, he needs surrogates like clinton. he's got some now. he's got michelle, castro, rahm, he's got chuck schumer out there, a lot of people. he has duval patrick out there. he has a lot of people, perhaps dozens of them that can give speeches that punch back at the republicans. it doesn't have to be barack obama out there taking all the hits. he could have a whole team of people. he has to stop using staff. he has to stop using staffers like plouffe and axelrod and those people. he has to start using political principles. i think that's really important. i have somebody yelling back here. i'm be sure if it is positive or negative here. back to you, rachel. >> i'm pretty sure that is david axelrod to you saying he shouldn't be going on national television anymore. >> at a certain point volume trumps point of view. to chris's point about surrogates and what will happen next, it is not just president obama speaking tomorrow night. they've put the president and the vice president on the same night. vice president biden actually got a huge cheer tonight in the hall when president
fighters. weather moved tonight indoors. but after a first night owned by michelle obama, after a second night owned by president clinton, expectations for the finale are sky high. msnbc's primetime coverage of the democratic national convention's final night begins right now. >>> thank you for joining us. i'm rachel maddow here at msnbc headquarters in new york. i'm joined by ed shultz, melissa harris-perry, chris hayes, and the senior strategist steve schmidt. lawrence o'donnell and al sharpton will be joining us in a moment. leading us from the site of the convention is our colleague and friend chris matthews. you said on opening night this week that democrats were having more fun than republicans. but that didn't necessarily mean that they were winning. the democrats have been ecstatic at previous conventions where they had gone on to lose. so how do you rate the democrats' happiness and their prospects? >> wow. you're hitting me with the toughest questions. there's two months left with a lot of economic news to come. we've got the unemployment rate coming out tomorrow morning. two m
for barack obama. some of the rather key ones is because he chose michelle as his wife. >> that was very sensible i think, yes. no, i think that she is a perfect partner for him. she is very strong. she's sort of balances, healthy, and practical firmness with gentleness and nurturing and she's a terrific mother and that is enormously important. >> you know barack better than most people. what will he be feeling? a lot of pressure? does he get nervous? >> i don't think he's nervous. i think he's very prepared. i think the speech is going to be great. and i think, you know, he's probably stretching his long limbs and excited to address the crowd. >> better than bill clinton's? that's the key question. >> i think he'll be different. everyone serves their purpose. michelle was about storytelling. about helping us to kind of frame the campaign issues and deeply, you know, loving intimate ways and bill clinton was about gaining perspective. on the last four years. and i think my brother is going to be about looking ahead. >> i think the crowd rather liked what you've just been saying. it's all
is much different in that regard. you listen to president clinton last night and michelle obama. our keynote speaker versus their keynote speaker. tonight from the vice-president and president. people are going to leave and they will get were these guys are going, understand their vision for this country and how we should get there. i think that is moving the ball forward. >> bring a clinician's eye for mitt romney. >> to get a little more insight into himself as a person. i am sure he gained from that. the downside was he did not give anybody a sense of really what he would do other than repeal everything that obama has done. >> that might be popular in some places. >> it certainly was popular in that hall. but in the country, i do not think that is what people are looking for. they're not looking to refi the battles of yesterday to go there looking to move forward. they're not looking to repeat the policies of the last decade. he simply did not answer the question, what would you do and where would you leave? for that reason, i think his speech was a missed opportunity. >> in your
have a funny question for you after listening to nancy pelosi speak now and thinking back on michelle obama last night talking about being the mom and she nancy pelosi introduced herself as a mother and a grandmother. and we saw her daughter and granddaughter in the crowd. is it possibly a strong, efficient, accomplished political woman anymore without saying you are a mom first? >> i am not a mom. i guess it is -- absolutely. but i have to laugh about all the times where nancy pelosi has described her leadership in terms of motherhood and in terms of being a woman. and i think it does make her a powerful leader. and i think my life experiences that i bring to the job everyday also make me a strong leader. >> and can i follow-up. michelle obama could have told an alternative story that she went to princeton, she went to harvard law and became a successful lawyer. she went to the chicago hospital system making $300,000 a year. top 1%. it was a successful career story. and she probably had doubts about leaving that behind. why is that not possible to tell that story? >> well, it is poss
